Today I want to take a moment to provide a public forum for anyone who wishes to take advantage of it.
Your child matters.
His or her story matters.
Your pain matters.
If you are so inclined, please “speak” your child(ren)’s name in the comments section.
Read the rest here: Your Child Matters
I am a shepherd, wife and mother of four amazing children, three that walk the earth with me and one who lives with Jesus. This is a record of my grief journey and a look into the life I didn't choose. If you are interested in joining a community of bereaved parents leaning on the promises of God in Christ, please like the public Facebook page, "Heartache and Hope: Life After Losing a Child" and join the conversation.

My son Timothy Lizotte is the most amazing gift, along with his Older brother,Danny and his sister, Caity. I don’t use the term was, because he continues to be a gift to us all ♥️ He ran to Heaven early (I love that term) 10/24/19 – He was 24. We had a celebration “Tim’s Day” and over 400 people came!! I was blown away by how many lives he had touched, either directly or indirectly!! I was so proud of him and he was so present that night!! He was engaged to Lucia, and she has stayed a strong part of our family. I will miss him every hour of every day. Lucia, Danny, Cait and I share our special times with him. It does truly help to talk about him. We all are processing to differently, but connect on the whole that will be forever Tim’s place in our hearts and lives.
He was a victim of the laced fentanyl drug, and I will never forgive the sick people who feel the need to compromise somebody’s life like that. Tim was hurting because of a brutal divorce his dad and I are going through, so I realize he made a bad choice, but I also know he didn’t want to die. We all believe he just needed to not hurt for a while. He will be forever missed, loved, admired for his contribution to so many lives. I know he’s on the beach with my dad, some friends that ran ahead of him, his bird and just recently our dog, Niko. That visual makes me happy 🙏✝️♥️
Aaron John Altman, you are loved you are missed and you are our angel. You ran ahead to heaven before life’s naturally order of life. We will never understand this side of heaven but we know you are always with us❤️WE love you❤️💯🙏
